Matteo was a wonderful host. We greatly enjoyed his home cooked dinner of pasta and sauce. He was always available to help us in any way we needed. The villa had everything we needed and is beautifully nestled in the hills of Umbria, off the beaten track, but convenient to highways.
A peaceful getaway and a base from which to explore Umbria
My extended family of 10 loved their stay at this villa. The owner, Matteo, could not have been more hospitable and welcoming. The villa itself is an excellently renovated farmhouse with high quality fittings and is wonderfully cool even in the heat of the day. The pool is great and a reasonable size with plenty of poolside furniture for 7-8 people set into a terrace that's about 30 paces from the villa. The terrace area is the jewel in the crown with a long table for family meals, card games late into the night or for those who enjoy the peace of an early morning, looking out over a rural Umbrian landscape (my personal favourite).
Laze by the pool or strike out for Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi which are not far away but even Sienna is less than 2 hours away. I thoroughly recommend this property. The bicycles are a thoughtful touch but if you're keen to cycle, bring your own or plan to hire in Perugia.
Dear Phil, I am very happy you spent a great time in Umbria and in Casale San Benedetto, Umbria is a beautiful country, not so full of tourists, so it is perfect for resting and exploring. I always try to fix the house at the best to allow my guests to live a great experience.
Take care and hope to see you and your family again.
Capodanno in Umbria
Bellissimo casale d'epoca, molto funzionale, con bagno in ogni camera da letto, Proprietario molto disponibile e cortese.Il posto molto bello con una stupenda vista verso la campagna Umbra.
Per il periodo, riscaldamenti eccellenti.
Ciao Massimo, sono contento che siete stati bene e speriamo di rivederci presto. Matteo
A spacious beautiful house with all the comfort you need
This house is a gem...
This beautifully restored house, in between the soft green hills of Umbria is a real retreat. The house is spacious, with all the amenities you can wish for. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated with extraordinary historic furniture, enough space for all the belongings, big long tables and lots of beautiful rustic chairs and benches and traditional, comfortable sofas and arm chairs. Every bedroom has a luxurious spacious ensuite bathroom. The house itself dates back to the 17th century, but the concept for restoration made the best out of it without compromising its charm and beauty.
We had a wonderful time. Matteo, the owner, provided us with really useful tips and told us about the long an interesting history of the house. Everything was absolutely uncomplicated and Matteo was there for us any time.
The property itself is nicely embedded in the hills and has a marvelous view on the surrounding hills and little “borgo” nearby. The neighbourhood is great for long morning walks through vineyards and old creeks. The large infinity pool is perfectly located for a swim into the horizon with tremendous views into the landscape.
The whole property is hard to describe without running out of adjectives. There is a large outdoor stone barbecue and pizza oven, a perfectly shadowed terrace, little spots and meadows here and there to relax. The owners offer classy comfortable outdoor furniture, lots of sun loungers, umbrellas and deck chairs to enjoy the pool and the outdoor space.
Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio and a lot of beautiful villages are very close (Matteo had also a lot of tips for us) and a very good equipped supermarket and little grocery stores are comfortably located in the nearby village. We tried out the vinotheque and two of the restaurants that Matteo recommended with great food and ambiences, but with such a beautifully equipped kitchen, there was often no need to got out rather than staying “home”. And that is exactly how we felt there: home!
We will definitely come again to stay longer!
Dear Andreas, thanks a lot for your careful review that will surely be useful for future guests. I'm glad you enjoyed your staying and hope to see you all again soon.
Amazing 3 weeks at the villa
When we arrived we were astounded by how beautiful the villa and surroundings were. The pictures do not do it justice. It was above and beyond what we expected. It was like what you see in the movies.
The villa is stunning. It is a restored farmhouse with spacious rooms.
We could see by the stone and woodwork that the owners put a lot of care into the restoration. It was extremely clean. It was surprisingly cool in the evenings with the help of fans provided by the owner.
Matteo went out of his way to provide an extra fan for us when we asked.
We really enjoyed eating every meal al fresco. The outside dining area has a breathtaking view and it accommodated us all comfortably. The pool was essential and a refreshing break from the summer heat.
Matteo was a perfect host. He went out of his way to meet us upon arrival and was very helpful, providing us with places to see off the beaten track, local restaurants and wineries. He was always accessible. We enjoyed meeting all of his family. They made us feel very welcome.
Overall, this was a trip of a lifetime and we have already recommended it to friends and family. We hope to visit Matteo and this villa which felt like home to us in the near future.
Dear Betty, i am very happy you enjoyed the house and your staying. It was beautiful to meet you and hope to see you all again. All the best for you and your friends. Matteo
Das Haus, der Pool und die Umgebung sind fantastisch.
Matteo und seine Familie kümmerten sich sehr um uns und haben uns viele Tips für Ausflüge in die Umgebung und z.B. Restaurants gegeben.
Perugia und Assisi und weitere sehr schöne Städte sind schnell und einfach zu erreichen. Wir werden sicher wiederkommen.
Dear Roland, thanks for your words, we are happy you spent a great time in the house and in Umbria, we try to make our best eachtime. Umbria is a beautiful and uncontaminated land (not crowded with tourists) where you can really relax. It was a pleasure to meet you and hope to see you again. All the best for you, family and friends.
About 5 kilometers away is a tennis club with four tennis courts. About 20 kilometers away is a beautiful 18-hole golf course. There are beautiful trails for hiking.
